Tiffany Sauceda, RN Receives The DAISY Award Recognition

Following in her mother’s footsteps, Tiffany chose to become a registered nurse because she wanted to care for patients in her own community. After graduating from Porterville High School, Tiffany completed nursing school at San Joaquin Valley College and received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Grand Canyon University in Arizona.

“My mother is a nurse and I watched her a lot and still look up to her as an RN,” says Tiffany.

Tiffany is a Maternal Child Health nurse and her commitment to compassionate care for Porterville’s moms and newborns recently was recognized when she was awarded The DAISY Award® For Extraordinary Nurses (The Daisy Award). The DAISY Award was created to recognize excellence in nursing across hospitals in the United States to honor the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day. Tiffany was nominated by a patient that she helped care for.

“The most rewarding thing in my career is the pure joy you see in your patient’s face the first time they meet their baby,” says Tiffany. Knowing she plays a role in an amazing milestone for both mother and baby motivates Tiffany to help create high-quality, safe patient experiences for our littlest patients.

More about The DAISY Award™

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this international award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
